Darren Fisher received a Doctorate in Visual Art from Griffith University in 2017 with a creative practice spanning animation, illustration, creative writing and design. His current focus is on storytelling, identity, and truth, particularly within autobiographical sequential art, with a keen interest in visual communication and the relationship between images and words. Through the utilisation of a number of different strategies such as short ‘gag’ strips, short length (5-24 page) self-contained narratives, and the long form graphic novel, he makes use of a range of media and storytelling devices in order to create reader engagement and explore the possibilities of the medium.
Darren is at the forefront of the Australian independent comic scene and has held roles as the organiser of the online 24 Hour Comic Challenge Australia, the independent comics anthology Ashcan, the collaborative comics meet up Ace Comics Jam, making contributions to various workshops and lectures on visual communication and sequential art, including an organisational role within Brisbane Digital Media Centre’s TEXTure exhibition and the State Library Queensland’s Ashcan exhibition in conjunction with the Brisbane Writers Festival. He is currently an active member of Melbourne’s Squishface Comic Studio.
